    I just got the 32" 05BSP's from Self Edge....here's original fit pics...are these too small in the thigh too?? : ( Is that space in my crotch area ok? AHHHHHH it SUCKS buying jeans when you have a small waist and muscular legs.

    I can't walk full stride...I don't know how much these will stretch though...

    because I can already pull 1.5" out at the waist....hot soak will shrink waist to make it FIT...then they will stretch an inch...

    if I went with a 33...after hot soak I'd STILL have an inch left in the waist...and their going to stretch even more...

    I don't think those have the right cut for you. You may want to look at something more relaxed in the thigh, maybe the Flathead 3005, Oni blue, KMW 1950 or PBJ xx-003.

    can your legs fit into a 34 after stretching? check the measurements on context's website.

    if so, go for it. apc stretch a TON and don't shrink back much after a soak.

    for reference I wear:
    34 in flathead f310
    32 in most nudie and prob levis

    and a 30 in APC rescue - and i could prob go down one


    34\t36\t12\t12\t9.5\t9.5
    35\t37\t12\t12\t9.75\t9.5
    36\t38\t12\t12.5\t9.75\t10

    I took my belt off last night and went to confirm just how much room i had in there... i thought i was a 38 waist but i guess im a 36 now... that would make sense because if i made fists with both my hands and stacked them on top of one another i could fit them in my pants. i then stretched out the waistband and folded it over to make it snug, marked and measured where my fingers were and it was damn near 2 if not more inches of slack (after stretching from repeated wears)

    when i laid them flat and measured across the waist it was at 22" which is way to big!! 44 inches?!?!

    I figured if i went with a 35 i would have the same problem after wearing for a certian amount of time, i swear if my butt wasnt as large as it is (lol) the 36's would fall right off... they sit on my hips and i can take them off unbuttoned without any effort really...

    Since i need to replace my other ones asap especially for an event next friday, I went ahead and had 34's overnighted to me... (should be here monday) so i can get them soaked and hemmed.

    hope they fit...........

    Which washing/drying settings should I use if I want to shrink down my jeans quite a bit. A hot soak didn't do much.

    Whatever gives you the most heat and agitation possible. Hot machine wash (high-speed if it's an option), hot tumble dry.
